Truly Blessed

I had a moment over something very silly.

I have Dora BandAids in my medicine cabinet, because I have two little girls. It just struck me. I love being a mom.
I have waited most of my life to be living this reality. Truly amazing!

Family Night - School!!!

In honor of Love starting school, we went to school as a family last night. She helped me make and pack the lunches. She made her sandwich all by herself!! It looked a little "pre-eaten" for my taste, but I think she did a good job for her first attempt! We ate what Love had in her lunch the first day of school - PB&J, fruit cup, granola bar, and a juice box.

Daddy was a good sport and ate all of his lunch! (he is not big on sandwiches or fruit!) Thanks Babe!!
Love and I did a little art too. We did windy and rainy art (in honor of Fay, that is keeping her home from the second day of school!) We sprinkled dry Jello on a piece of paper and stood out in the rain to watch the rain show up on the paper! She also got to blow paint around with a straw.

We ended the evening reading stories and watching Blue Takes You to School.
It was fun to spend time together. I am realizing that the pictures are important but not as important as really BEING with my family!! I know that is the whole point of these nights!

In preparation for Family Night

Love and I attempted our first homemade pull-apart cake!! I was pretty impressed with the result. I am not sure what is up with me and cupcakes. Mine never seem to turn out right! These were very flat! But they served the purpose.
Can you guess the theme for Family Night?

The first day of preschool

Little girl,
Your mommy is so proud of you! Today is a big day. You take that first step out into the big world. You faced it with excitement and anticipation. You gave me a kiss so I could carry your love with me today. Then you let your teacher usher you into a new wonderful world of learning.
I love you, baby!!

Publix Super Savers

I will post my savings a little later.

I ran into a problem using 2 coupons at Publix. My cashier would only let me use one (I has several items that I had one from the paper and one I had printed) He said that the coupon had one it "only one per customer". I think they are two different coupons and I should be able to use them. I mentioned that the codes were different, he would not back down. I think that phrase on the coupon is open to interpretation.

Ta Da!!

When we were in New York, Smiles decided to get vertical a try!! Now her favorite game is Up/Down!! So funny to watch her plop down and grin!! She is beginning to cruise a little bit!!

She also decided to try crawling on her hands and knees (instead of on her tummy!) She still ops to army crawl when she wants to get somewhere fast, but we are seeing the crawling more and more.
